The Yamaha Clavinovas are enormously popular due to their realistic feel and sound. As the Yamaha CLPs have evolved throughout the years, technology has advanced meaning that digital pianos are getting closer and closer to their acoustic counterparts. The Yamaha CLP600 digital pianos have a number of features that help improve both playing experience and practicality.

CLP600 Series Clavinova - Ebony Keys

First off, all the black keys on the 600 series Clavinova pianos are finished with synthetic ebony. This not only feels more like the keys on an acoustic piano, but also helps absorb moisture - very handy if you're playing for long periods, as your fingers are less likely to slip off the keys.

CLP600 Series Clavinova - GrandTouch

Yamaha have introduced a brand new action - GrandTouch. This has been designed to offer players a more dynamic touch, so what you put into the piano with your fingers, is what you get out via the speakers. This allows you to play with more expression; something that seasoned players and beginners alike will love. Each key has also been carefully balanced so it responds more like a key on an acoustic grand piano, regardless of whereabouts on the key you strike it. GrandTouch is featured on the Yamaha Clavinova CLP675 and CLP685.

CLP600 Series Clavinova - Improved Virtual Resonance Modeling

The last generation of Yamaha Clavinovas featured Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM). On an acoustic piano, when you press down a key, a hammer strikes the string which then moves thus producing sound. A by-product of this is that the other strings, and other mechanical parts do reverberate very slightly. Yamaha's VRM reproduces this so you get all the nuances that you would get with an acoustic. The new CLP600 Clavinovas feature improved VRM for closer authetnicity. They even reproduce the sensation of the piano vibrating slightly - as an acoustic piano would!

CLP600 Series Clavinova - Bluetooth

From the CLP645 upwards, the 600 series Clavinovas feature bluetooth. This enables you to connect your device - iPhone, iPad, Android etc, to your digital piano and use apps such as Yamaha's NoteStar (which is great fun, and especially useful for helping children learn). The CLP600 series Clavinovas are the first Yamaha digital pianos to feature bluetooth.

CLP600 Series Clavinova - Binaural Sampling

When Yamaha sample their CFX piano, they do so with special microphones placed in such a way, so that when you're using your Clavinova with headphones, you have the sensation of sitting at a real concert grand. By placing these microphones where your ears would be in relation to the piano, the samples that are triggered on your Clavinova sound just how you would hear the acoustic piano, if you were playing that. By placing these microphones where your ears would be in relation to the piano, the samples that are triggered on your Clavinova sound just how you would hear the acoustic piano, if you were playing that. The Yamaha CLP600 range is all about recreating the sensation of playing at an acoustic grand piano - this Binaural Sampling technology combined with ebony feel keys and a great keyboard action means that the new Clavinovas are closer than ever.
